>> reporter: you want to be pow lite about it. >> if at first you don't succeed, ask for a manager that it would work for us. in fact we were successful in about 50% in our negotiations. now it's not fern. >> and that is just not it. >> reporter: but it is a strategy that could pay off. >> reporter: so they are willing to meet the competitor pricing on similar items that it will be price matching, but only on the identical items, which excludes the fragrances and fine jewelry. >> i had no idea. >> me neither. >> get it time. winter has been rough on the ski resorts for the latest storm to help bring the fresh powder. and it is since wednesday night with another foot that is expected by the end of today. >> it is exciting and it is finally here, brian. >> yes, it is a real kind of weird system here on the low
latitude thing meaning it didn't come from the gulf of alaska that it is right on the shoreline and it is just heading through east and it is pretty impressive looking for the rainfall amounts about a third of an inch, a little bit more up top which is coming from the south to the north and the heavier cells of the early saturday morning. you can see because of that direction by the time they get from down here up through the peninsula, a lot has been squeezed out over 17 along the shoreline. you can see just north of san jose that there is not too much and still we'll be looking for scattered shower this is morning and the heaviest stuff that will be south and the temperatures this morning are on the milder side as you can see the peeks in blue as we look live. temperatures are in the mid- 50s, 54 degrees. morning showers which will be down south with a chance of
showers right through the evening with on again and off again stuff that will favor the closer you are to the coast and the farther south. that's the greater events and where they will fall. if you go shoreline, we have a high surf advisory for surfers up to 20 feet. that is posted until 3:00 this afternoon. this is the impressive low pressure system, heading a little bit south, forecasting over santa barbara by 4:00 this afternoon, so they will get pounded down there. all in the last 24 hours, which is a lot for southern california. the problem is that you store all the water up here, they use it all. if it rains down there, they're watering their lawns, but at least they are not using too
much water as usual. you can see we get good cells moving on in. so at that time we will be looking at scattered showers over the peninsula and some clearing in the north bay and you can see the on again and off again clouds popping up, a few showers from time to time. on the future cast you can see that the rain will be on the order of a 10th to a third of an inch, notice in santa cruz about half of an inch will do it. tomorrow will be in the low to mid-60s and the extended forecast to continue a bit unsettled with temperatures warming into the upper 60s by tuesday and a chance of showers on again and off again and another little shot that will be coming through on wednesday. but that it will do it for you. after we show you this storm,
it won't be too much. and so enjoy it while you can. >> hopefully they will keep them coming. >> yes, we will see. >> all right, thank you very much. starting in april, you'll be paying more. first it goes up by $1 in 2018. the toll hikes are expected to raise over $108 over the next five years. when you think this, you may think why. i think something else. where is roberta? on kpix5. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
